反叛者——布鲁赫

 女祭司兼哲学家托丽俯瞰着伊诺拥挤的众生。她看见兄弟争利而互相厮杀,看见众人被不公的君王奴役。但她了解更多。她能帮他们自由。可一生太过短暂而改变总得流血。她的子嗣秉承了她的宏伟蓝图和糟糕脾气。若你寻求永恒反叛者的蛛丝马迹,看看迦太基的屠戮,看看法国大革命的恐怖,看看苏联的古拉格和电吉他的音波尖叫。他们总站在永恒斗争的最前沿,他们的战斗呐喊仍在约翰·莱顿和亨特·S·汤普森的凡声中回响。


篡位者——睿魔尔
 
 他是个凡人,是个法师,是最年轻的先祖。在首个千禧年前不久觉醒。他对宇宙的理解近乎无限。他能移动天地。他知晓上帝面庞、恶魔历史和比两者更古老的谜团。究极真理仅一步之遥。但他正老去,脆弱、困惑又恐惧。而对将死之人来说,力量和知识意义何在?所以,睿魔尔拒绝了。死亡是病,必有解药,为此不存在高昂代价。或在他窃取莉莉丝诅咒,并把吾辈炼金术据为己有前,是这么想的。正如查克·帕拉纽克所写:“为了不朽,你首先得死去”。而死者没有真实魔法。急于夺回火焰的他建立了血奇术的传统,偷取凡人血液和灵魂来驱动仪式,寻找重回太阳之下的办法。但那是很久以前了。他们筑就的金字塔将自己困于僵化的等级制度,对纯粹力量的渴望盖过了曾经崇高的目标。建立在偷窃上的力量也只能维持这么久。如今金字塔已毁,睿魔尔的真相将于他追随者的血液中揭晓。


可怖者——诺斯费拉图
 
 对生者来说,他是押沙龙——国王大卫的逆子;对吾辈来说,他是阿布斯米拉德。但这不重要。他是血脉创伤,愤怒诅咒。还是可怕瘟疫,吃掉了自己的孩子,迫使其遭受他曾有过的悲惨羞辱。他是国王最俊美的子嗣,将权力粉饰为正义,在自己肆意与父亲嫔妃上床时,杀害了玷污他妹妹者——他同父异母的兄长。怎会有人否定他呢?他自认如此完美公正,万物生来属于他——直到他吸引了永恒目光,品尝到了真正的正义。他不朽的代价——腐败灵魂的本质——铭刻在了脸上。

 至少吾辈永不像汝辈,像吾父。也永不自认为啥啥的王——老鼠和狗屎除外。汝辈内在溃败,吾辈外在溃败。我清楚我更喜欢哪个。


歌唱者——托瑞朵
 
 男女都愿为能呆在歌唱者的怀抱中一会儿而杀人。她/他是史前巨星,一个如此美丽的存在,以至上帝都无法想象其衰老丑陋。玫瑰在她的双乳开始下垂,他的东西开始萎缩时,做了交易。它将永不褪色,永不死去。作为交换,歌唱者将是漫长年代中爱情、美丽和艺术的守护者。恶魔微笑,因其死而复生。美丽的暴政被奉为不朽的谋杀者。


受苦者——迈卡维
 
 他们的真名早已遗失,但请思考迈卡维、莫洛奇和马拉凯的相似处——一个该隐后裔、一个圣经恶魔和一个主之天使。知道吗,过去时代的人们就是这么定义“疯子”的——被超出凡俗理解之物所附身的男女。老者们仍认为首位受苦者根本不是人类。我认为事实比那更简单——迈卡维是唯一一个知晓真相的始祖。他们已死但仍饥渴,这种感知撕裂了他们的心灵。若你想一想,这便是个合理反应。疯子或多或少自豪地携带这种清晰认知的诅咒,每个人都是先知或疯子,渴望在生者血液中淹没他们的境况。一些夜晚里我恐惧他们,其余则想成为他们,想象着疯狂是对心兽谜团的唯一理智反应。有一件事是明确的:迈卡维活在他所有的后代体内,同时以千种声音说话。也许集群是他们更好的名字译注:“集群”原文是“Legion”,这里可能是在援引圣经里恶魔的名字“群”,与开头“一个圣经恶魔”相呼应,感谢Lucivenya指出)。


兽性者——冈格罗
 
 恩诺娅在莉莉丝生下她时便诅咒了自己的母亲,唾弃了眼中的所有追求者,像狼一样自在生活,只与她同类的最强者就寝。据说她的腹中孕育了疯狂的月之狼人,她也以“上帝的雌性一半”闻名,因为她就是地土生育力本身。她对男性的世界——他们的城市或习俗——没有用处。所以她将自己隔离,死去在世界,重生于荒野。她是首个被遗弃者,掠夺者和连环杀手中的圣人。十三人里仅她接受心兽为自身一部分。她的后代乘袭了她的独立和对狩猎的渴望。他们的血液仍流淌着被长久遗忘的兽性,一旦苏醒就会慢慢退化,直到以四肢奔跑,对星空嚎叫——就像恩诺娅的族群同伴那样。


王权者——梵卓
 
 很久以前,有位完美的国王,臣民都无比崇拜他。

 
剧透 -   :
“愿吾万世永昌——非为吾,而为吾民之欢欣。”

 曾经,的确如此。但如今,王权之氏族统治的是悲伤、分裂和恐惧的王国。也许服侍你知晓的魔鬼,比冒险涉足你尚未发现的可怕事物更好?他们指引和睿智的回报便是要求星球上的所有人都成为其奴仆或子民。由于绝大多数长老在血统既力量的年代成长,氏族内部相当陈腐,只要仍在王座,休谈平等。

The Rebel – Brujah
 
 The philosopher-priestess Troile looks out over the teeming masses of Enoch. Brother killing brother for the profit of another. Slaves to unjust kings. She knows better. She can help them break free. But a lifetime is short and change always requires a sacrifice in blood. Her childer inherited her grand project and poor anger management. If you seek the lipstick trace of the eternal Rebel, look to the slaughter of Carthage, the terror of the French revolution, the Gulags of the Soviet Union, and the sonic scream of the electric guitar. Always at the forefront of the War of Ages, their battle-cry still echoes in the mortal voices of Johnny Rotten and Hunter S. Thompson.
 

The Usurper – Tremere
 
 He is a mortal man. A Mage. Youngest of the progenitors. Awakened just before the first millennium. His understanding of the cosmos is almost boundless. He can move the skies and the earth. He knows the face of God, the history of the Devil, and mysteries older than both. Ultimate truth beckons just out of his reach. But he is growing old. Frail. Confused. Afraid. What is power and knowledge to he who is to die? So, Tremere refuses. Death is a disease and there must be a cure. No price is too high. Or so he thought before he stole Lilith's curse and made our Alchemy his own. It's like Chuck Palahniuk wrote: "to become immortal, first you have to die". And the dead have no true Magick. Desperate to recapture the flame, he founded a tradition of Blood Sorcery, stealing human vital fluid and soul to fuel their rites and find a way back to the sun. But that was long ago. The Pyramid Order they built trapped them in a rigid hierarchy, obscuring their once noble goals with a thirst for pure power. And power built on a theft can only last so long. The Pyramid is broken, and the truth about Tremere is about to be revealed in the Blood of his followers.


The Horror – Nosferatu
 
 To the living, he is Abshalom - treasonous son of biblical King David. To us he is Absimilard. It matters little. He is a wound in the Blood and a curse uttered in rage. A plague that eats his own childer and forces them to suffer the same abject humiliation he once did. Most beautiful of royal sons, he masked his entitlement as justice, slaying his sister's defiler -his own half-brother as he bedded his father's concubines freely. How could anyone deny him? So perfect and just he thought himself, that everything was his by right, until he caught the eye of eternity and had a taste of real justice. The price of his immortality – the essence of his rotten soul writ large across his face.
 
 At least we'll never be like you, like our Father. We'll never think of ourselves as kings of anything but rats and shit. You fall apart on the inside, we are broken on the outside. I know which I prefer.
 

The Diva – Toreador
 
 Men and women alike would kill for a moment in the Diva's arms. S/he was a superstar prehistory, a being so beautiful not even God could imagine it growing old and ugly. Just as her tits were starting to sag and his cock began to weaken, the Rose made a deal. It would never fade. Never die. In return, the Diva would be the keeper of love, beauty, and art through the long ages. The devil smiled as it died and rose again - the tyranny of beauty enshrined as immortal murderer.
 

The Afflicted – Malkavian
 
 Their real name is lost, but consider the similarity between Malkav, Moloch, and Malakai. a Cainite, a Biblical demon and an angel of the Lord. That's what people thought the "insane" were in ages past you know - men and women possessed by things beyond human understanding. Old ones still think of the first of the Afflicted as distinctly inhuman. I think it's simpler than that; Malkav was the only one of the ancients who understood what was really going on. They were dead but still hungered, and that realisation shattered their mind. A sensible reaction if you think about it. The lunatics carry this curse of clarity more or less proudly, each one a seer and madman, desperate to drown their condition in the resonant blood of the living. Some nights I fear them, others l want to be them, imagining madness the only sane response to the ridldle of the Beast. One thing is sure: Malkav lives on in all their progeny, speaking with a thousand voices at once. Perhaps a better name for them is Legion.
 

The Beasts – Gangrel
 
 Ennoia cursed her mother Lilith as she birthed her, spat all suitors in the eye, and lived free as a wolf, laying only with the greatest of her kind. From her loins it is said sprung the moon mad Lupines, and she is known as " the female half of God” for hers was the fertility of the earth itself. She had no use for the world of men, their cities, or their customs. So, she set herself apart, died to the world, and rose again in the wilderness. First of outcasts, saint of predators and serial killers. Of all the 13 she alone accepted the Beast as a part of herself. Her descendants inherited her independence and lust for the hunt. In their Blood still awaits long buried animal traits, that once awakened make them devolve slowly until they run on all fours and howl their songs to the starlit sky as once did the pack mates of Ennoia.
 

The Kings – Ventrue
 
 Once upon a time there was a perfect King whose every subject adored him.
 
 
剧透 -   :
"Les my reign last forever - not for my sake, but for the happiness of my people."

 And so, it was. But now the Clan of Kings lord over a kingdom of sorrow, dissent, and fear. Perhaps it is better to serve the devil you know than take your chances with horrors you've yet to discover? In return for their guidance and wisdom, they claim every being on the planet as their vassals or their subjects. With most elders having been raised in a time when blood was power, the clan is fiercely feudal in its outlook, and no equality will come as long as they remain on their thrones.
